From TED: We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining talk from TEDxBloomington, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity.
When our brains are at “happy” that positivity will ripple out to others and can increase productivity. Here are Achor’s 5 simple changes/habits that can create lasting positive change:
- 3 Gratitudes (thank 3 people each day)
- Journaling (write about good things that happened each day)
- Meditation (take time to reflect)
- Random Acts of Kindness
